One of the neatest things we did on one of our Sunday Drives was to head out to Sweetwater for the Annual Rattlesnake Roundup. many of you are not familiar with that, so I found a short video that gives you an idea of what the event is like.
As a little boy of maybe seven, the rattlesnake Roundup was beyond neat. It was cool. I thought the guy in the pen with all those live rattlers surrounding him, was the bravest man I'd ever seen. Now days, I know that he was just a dumbass. Or drunk. Or both.
The Rattlesnake Roundup is held the second weekend in March every year in Sweetwater at the Nolan County Coliseum. There is more to the Roundup as you'll see when you, like a BBQ Cooking Contest and other stuff, when you click here. The Sweetwtaer Jaycees oversee this event each year like they have since 1958. You can contact them at (325) 235-8938.
It's a nice easy drive to Sweetwater form D/FW on I-20 West and it doesn't take long to get there. If you get a chance, please go see this thing in person. It's a cool event.
